The Shades Repertory Theater Presents

Dutchman

Written by

Amiri Baraka


Directed by

Mel Hancock

Dutchman takes place in a subway train in the flying underbelly of NYC:” Clay, a black intellectual, is riding the train, minding his own business, when Lula, a white woman wearing a small, revealing dress, boards the subway, daintily eating an apple. She takes the seat next to Clay. Her manner and mode of conversing with Clay swings from boldly flirtatious to oddly morose and aloof as they share more apples. As LuLu continue to probe Clay, the two expose internal fears and phobias centered around racial and sexual taboo.

Amiri Baraka (born Everett LeRoi Jones) was the author of numerous books of poetry and taught at a number of universities. He was one of the most respected and widely published Black writers of his generation. Baraka has received numerous prestigious foundations, including the Guggenheim Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, Langston Hughes Award, and Rockefeller Foundation. He was Poet Laureate of New Jersey in 2002-2003 and most recently received the PEN Open Book Award in 2008 for Tales of the Out and the Gone. Amiri Baraka passed away on January 9, 2014.


Dutchman won the Obie Award for Best American Play in 1964
